The NRMA Insurance Car Reversing Visibility Index has been developed to encourage Australian motorists to compare the safety design features of small and large cars. The Australian insurance company NRMA takes into account the visible area and distance across the rear of the car and whether reversing cameras and reverse sensors have been installed. Results are rated on a scale of zero to five stars, with a rating of five indicating better reversing visibility than all other vehicles.

NRMA Insurance Road Safety Manager Pam Leicester reminded all parents that even the best reversing camera was no substitute for adult supervision of children around cars.

"Tragically, every week a child is run over in their driveway in Australia and these incidents account for about 10per cent of all child pedestrian deaths and injuries.*

"Small children are naturally inquisitive, can move surprisingly quickly and can be in unexpected places so motorists should never drive a vehicle where a small child could be unattended. Make sure an adult is holding the child or put the child securely in the vehicle with you when you are maneuvering in a driveway," she said.
